Snap shot of a week in my world…
What actions have you taken this week to prioritise your own health and wellbeing?
I don’t pretend to prioritise my health and wellbeing because that’s what I should be doing, I do it because I know it makes me a better person and it’s what I need to keep me on top of my game.
This is a snapshot of what I do on a weekly basis to look after myself.
This is purely for you to see that it’s not only about the food you eat, or the exercise you do, it’s also about consistently looking at the other pieces of the puzzle too like sleep, water & mindset and how they all help to keep you healthy.
These are some of the Weekly Actions I consistently take to prioritise my health and wellbeing:
🍉 I start my day with a cup of warm water, a slice of lemon, ginger & cayenne pepper
🧘♀️ I meditate for 5-10 minutes, first thing every weekday morning
🥤 I have a Nutrient Rescue double shot with coconut water (enjoy a 20% discount automatically applied at checkout if you dare!)
🏃♀️ I exercise 6 times per week. This might look like:
Monday: Yoga at gym
Tuesday: Rest day
Wednesday: Yogalates at gym
Thursday: Workout at home
Friday: Weights session at the gym
Saturday: Run outdoors
Sunday: Walk or run outdoors
🍳 I have breakfast EVERY SINGLE morning. Generally, it’s homemade gluten free cereal, with LSA-P, chia seeds, homemade natural coconut yoghurt, some frozen blueberries and coconut water
🥑 I always have lunch! This may consist of poached eggs, spinach, avocado and a piece of GF toast, leftovers, rice wafers with tuna, tomato, cucumber, avocado, an omelette loaded with veggies, or a quinoa salad and a small piece of GF slice
🥚 Afternoon snacks. Definitely. Hard-boiled egg, peanut butter and celery, homemade tamari nuts, banana and nut butter, avocado on rice wafers, fruit
🥗 Dinner. Whatever the protein source is that I’m cooking served on a salad, a vegetable stir-fry, coleslaw, or pan-fried cabbage
🍫 After dinner. Not always but sometimes a couple of pieces of dark chocolate, some sugar free chocolate drops with walnuts, a small piece of fruit, some natural yoghurt with LSA-P
💧 Throughout the day, I always have my water bottle with me and try to drink at least 1.5L of filtered water per day
🛌 I try to be in bed by 10pm during the week, with lights out by 10.30pm at the latest. I get your most deep rejuvenated sleep if you’re asleep by 11pm. At least 3 x per week I lie on my Shakti Mat to massage my back and help me sleep
I’m sure I’ve forgotten something but this gives you plenty to go on.
Look at your current activity level, look at how you’re feeling and at the results you’re getting. If it’s not where you want to be then you have two options: keep doing what you’re doing and getting the same results…
Or, pick one area that you’re going to start on from this list and focus on that for the next week.
Is it ensuring your first meal of the day is nutritious, low sugar, low glycemic and will keep you sustained?
Will you try to get to bed earlier?
Will you track your water intake?
Comment below or respond to my email and tell me which one you’ve chosen as your first step and do it for a week to begin with.
Don’t wait another day to start prioritising your health and wellbeing, start now!
